Businesses can apply for a share of £13 million to develop quantum technology prototypes or establish technical or market feasibility
Programme: Innovate UK
Award: Up to £1,400,000
Opens: 30th Jan 2017
Closes: 5th Apr 2017
The purpose of this competition is to support challenge-led collaborative research and development (CR&D) projects in quantum technologies. Innovate UK are looking to fund projects that produce prototype devices and demonstrators. These must meet a clear commercial application or market need.
It will help your application if one of the project partners is an end user or customer of the technology.
Innovate UK are particularly looking for projects that align with the UK’s roadmap for quantum technologies. These themes include:
Quantum sensors, such as:
Quantum-enhanced imaging, such as:
Quantum information technologies such as quantum computers.
Quantum communications, such as:
Other quantum technology systems that exploit the quantum effects of superposition or entanglement.
Your project may include work packages that either:
To allow for all levels of interest, Innovate UK are running a feasibility studies competition in parallel with this competition, click here for details. This will allow for earlier, more exploratory investigations and development into:
A business or RTO must lead the project and be collaborative.
Your project must focus on industrial research and you could get:
